Arnold Schwarzenegger has terminated the opposition to top a poll to find the most memorable movie line of all time.

The action star's famous line from The Terminator - "I'll be back" - picked up 16 per cent of votes, beating Clark Gable's "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn" from the American Civil War epic Gone With The Wind.

Other popular lines included "May the force be with you" from Star Wars and Humphrey Bogart's immortal "Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world, she walks into mine" from the wartime classic Casablanca.

The poll of 2,000 people, commissioned by Sky's movie streaming service Now TV, also asked film fans to pick a recent quote they think will live on in cinema history and almost a third (32.65 per cent) went for the line "With great power comes great responsibility" from Spider-Man.

Now TV's Simon Creasey said: "The research shows that movies have become a fundamental part of our everyday lives. We were surprised to see that six per cent of the nation use movie quotes in business meetings at work, four per cent slip movie quotes in at weddings and three per cent even try quoting a movie to talk their way out of a parking ticket."
